In this paper, a modified Gardner's timing-error estimation algorithm is proposed for space-time block coding (STBC) schemes. In STBC schemes, the symbol timing-error can be estimated for each received antenna. The proposed algorithm is the diversity combining of all symbol timing-error estimates using Gardner's algorithm with the assumptions of identical channel delay of each SISO sub-stream. Simulation results show the proposed algorithm improves the symbol timing-error estimation performance through diversity gains. Estimation of symbol timing-error in multiple-input and multiple-output (MIMO) antenna systems is an another suitable area of application.
